Best and worst states for docs--from their POV

When I say best state for a doctor, I mean the states where they can make the most money. How does that translate to best or worst
for the patient--you have to decide.





BEST STATES (from WalletHub)
Iowa
Minnesota
Idaho
Wisconsin
S Dakota
Montana
Mississippi
Alabama
Tennessee

WORST
Delaware
Hawaii
Maine
Connecticut
Massachusetts
Rhode Island
Maryland
New Jersey
District of Columbia
New York

Fun facts:

Nebraska has the highest annual wage for surgeons (adjusted for cost of living)--$307,590.

This is 2.5 times the District of Columbia average for surgeons.

Idaho has the lowest number of doctors per 1,000 residents--DC has ten times as many.

Florida has the highest expected share of people 65 and older by 2030. That would be 27.1% of the population. Utah is lowest--13.2%.

Wyoming has the most disciplinary actions taken against physicians--with south Carolina coming in with the least.

North Dakota has the lowest amount of malpractice awards per capita..35 times lower than NY!

Wisconsin has the lowestt malpractice insurance rate--New York's is six times higher.

I always check my doctors with the medical board to see if they have paid out for malpractice. Do you?
